At a garage sale, I acquired three pewter plates. It is some kind of commemorative memorabilia, but they say PEW-TA-REX on the back and are heavy.
I paid $4 for three of them, and they weigh 5 lbs.
Anyhow, reading about pewter, it seems like a great material to cast things, make toy soldiers, HO scale accessories, etc. Like lead, it melts at a low temp, but is not as toxic and dirty. I can melt it right in the grill.
Has anyone tried casting pewter? And can you make aluminum molds for casting pewter? It would be cool to make molds on my CNC mill.i
